Procrastination is a habit many students go through but aren't aware of the effects procrastination has upon us. Procrastinators delay and make excuses for the things that have to be done in their daily lives. The reason why procrastinators set of an assignment later, is because they are either a perfectionist or they look over their life too much. Not only does procrastination effect your mental health, it also effects your physical health. People who procrastinate tend to eat poorly, sleep less, and do drugs more than people that do their homework promptly. Procrastination is also a stress factor, which we will be learning more about in health class. Students also tend to put things off, like healthy behaviors and exercise. Planning out what you are going to do, invoke a buddy system, set a reward for yourself, and trying to keep time manageable are some ways procrastinators can kick the habit off.
